How to Increase Your Nashville Home's Humidity

November 23, 2015

Your home's humidity plays a critical role in your family's coziness. As the seasons change, humidity levels vary as well.  

Dry air during colder weather in Nashville can make your throat and nose feel scratchy. It can also put you at a increased risk for colds and other ailments.

For greatest comfort, your rooms’ humidity levels should be between 35 and 50 percent.
